It all goes to show…

A local (and lovely!) gallery, the VAE, holds a juried show every few years for unframed works on paper. I entered a journal this year — have I mentioned I love keeping a watercolor journal? — and not only got in, but won an award!  Now I have an excuse to buy more journals.

Here are a few pages from the journal in the show.  It was a varied, workbook kind of thing, with some on-site sketches, some children’s illustrations, a few botanical studies, and, inevitably, a shopping list or two.







How sweet it is

The Illustration Friday theme this week is “sweet.”


This is a card I did a while back, in one of my first watercolor journals.  It’s got a companion piece, also done a while ago — the styles are different, but both make me crave sugar!
